Bridesmaid dresses stolen a week before couple's wedding

A bride-to-be in Plymouth has been left in a flood of tears after discovering thieves had broken into her car and stolen her bridesmaid dresses - just a week before the big day.

The next morning, she discovered her rear window had been smashed.

"I only thought that a few beer bottles and some loose change had been taken, but on further inspection I realised that two of my bridesmaid dresses have been stolen too.

I had put these in the car that night, ready to take to work in the morning to give to two of my lovely bridesmaids, on going to get these I realised that they were nowhere to be seen."

Kim took to Facebook to try "to see if, by any stroke of luck, someone has tried to sell them".

Police are investigating the theft of the mint green and barley pink dresses, which are believed to cost in excess of a £100 each.
